Although the World Cup in Qatar has just started, we have already seen some sensations. One of them is the defeat of Germany against Japan (1:2). Germany dominated most of the match, but the Asians took advantage of their chances and got an important 3 points.
After the meeting, Ilkay Gundogan, the author of the only goal of the German national team, spoke about the sensational defeat. The midfielder noted that they helped the Japanese to win and conceded very easy goals.
“We made it very easy for the Japanese to win. We scored goals very easily, especially the second one. I don’t know if there has been an easier goal in the World Cup. We are in the World Cup and this should not happen. We dominated most of the game. We had incredible moments, but we couldn’t score the second goal. “We’re not playing badly, but we’re lacking confidence. Catching the ball, moving, passing the ball. I feel like not everyone wanted the ball,” Gundogan said.
Hans Flick’s team will play the second match of the group stage against Spain on November 27. The main goal of the German national team should be to get 3 points, because otherwise the team coached by Flick will greatly reduce the chances of reaching the playoffs.
